Sadly though....I have been told to come in - can't play anymore - got things to do (OH off to Cannes v early in the morning).

BUT.....I can play ALL DAY tomorrow (not at work).

Please dont' rain, please don't rain.....

G'day Pooped!
Before you buy an iTrip for your iPod, check whether you have an Aux socket in either your glovebox or centre console.
I may be wrong but I thought EOS's sold in Europe and the USA had an Aux-in socket as standard.
If so, all you need is a cable with 1/8th inch (3mm) stereo plugs at both ends to play your iPod (or any MP3 player) through your radio.
You should be able to get one of these at any electronics store, or any store that sells iPod accessories.
Yes, the jack to jack lead is probably the right one.
One end plugs into the headphone socket of your iPod, the other identical jack into an aux-in socket.
You should find any aux-in socket at the back of the glovebox near the top right corner, or at the back of the storage compartment under the centre arm-rest (all we get in Australia is a blank).

As for the hesitation in the TDI when you press the accelerator quickly, that is just normal turbo-lag.
I had a Golf 1.9 TDI before the EOS and I don't remember it being as pronounced though.
It may improve as you get more miles on the engine (>6,500miles/10,000km).

Anyway, I'm off to the yearly "Day of the Volkswagen" at Glenelg.
Don't really expect to see any EOS's there, just beetles and kombi's, but you never know!
